The Future of Conventional Power in India

Conventional power remains the major source of power in India, accounting for 70% of all installed power generation capacity. The development of cleaner and more efficient thermal power technologies and the revamping of power plants therefore are key to securing an efficient energy supply and meeting emissions targets.

Shri Piyush Goyal, Minister of state for Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy and Mines is working on a plan to create a ‘Thermal Power Ecosystem’ which has high scale, high efficiency, high coal linkage predictability, and greater supply visibility for power-consumers.

The POWER-GEN India & Central Asia conference brings together experts who will discuss the use of cleaner and more efficient conventional power technologies to provide sustainable energy access for all the country’s population.
